How do you remove a maggot from a kitten?

Take it to the vet ASAP. I had the same problem three years ago with a kitten found living under a dumpster. After the maggot is removed, the wound will need to be stitched, and the main threat to the kitten will be infection. I still have that kitten, a cat now of course, and she is perfectly healthy, but the maggot would have killed her if not removed by the vet.
